From the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Cast iron cornstick pans make the best presentation, but a square pan will work. Bacon grease enhances the flavor, but you can also use a mild-flavored vegetable oil.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Divide 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease among the corn-stick molds. (if you use a baking pan, pour about 2 tablespoons bacon grease into the pan).
  3. Place pan in the preheated oven.
  4. In a medium bowl, stir together cornmeal, oatmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Stir in remaining 4 tablespoons bacon grease, eggs, buttermilk, chopped scallions and chopped chipotle.
